Homework Help: Statistics Question

  1. Apr 22, 2012 #1
    So i have a list of different person height (n=100) between 5 and 8 foot.

    1) Test H0: mu = 5.9 vs Ha: mu (not) = 5.9ft with alpha = 0.05?
    2) Test H0: Student height has a normal distribution vs H1: Student doesnt have a normal distribution alpha = 0.05 using X^2 distribution

    What does it mean by test? what do i have to do here?

    My advice: look in your textbook and course notes. Then, if there is a specific aspect you do not understand, ask the question here. For example, people here are often willing to clear up points of confusion that students may have with course-notes or textbooks' explanations---but your question is far too general.
